“Quiet place”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This is very nice and very quiet camping place just a few hundred meters from the main street.We rented a small bungalow completly equipped.The owner and all staff was very pleasant and famillial.We spent some times with other campers watching football in TV and it was really international evening.All comunity was great.If you plan visit Gorges du Verdon and the Castellane be sure that this camping is the right place to stay.

My group of 8 stayed at La Ferme de Castellane after hiking the Sentier Martel in the Gorges du Verdon. It was a little bit of a drive from the gorge, but it was nice to be close to Castellane so we could easily explore in the morning. As many have noted, the owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. In addition, the mobile homes we rented were spotlessly clean and completely stocked - plates, cups, pots and pans, silverware, serving dishes and utensils, dish soap and sponge, wine and beer openers - everything! Each bed had pillows and a blanket, and the benches in the dinette area folded out to form another double bed. Realistically, each home could fit 6 people. Another bonus was the charcoal grill in the communal area, which was well stocked with charcoal and wood. While we grilled our sausages, we made friends with a fellow griller, who offered us the last of his pastis. We returned the favor with an offer of a s'more, which was very well-received. Finally, the camp "store" is well stocked with essentials and treats in case you forget anything, there's a petanque area (with lights!), and lots of places for kids to play. And despite the fact that the campground is pretty full, we found the whole area to be very quiet after 11 pm and up through 11 am when we left. Overall, we had a great night at Camping la Ferme de Castellane and would definitely return!

this camping site made our day! The owner was so genuinely friendly and handed us two bottles of wine as a welcome present. The mobil-home we rented was clean and comfortable. A perfect camping site which is more than recommendable!

We had planned to stay here for several nights in Castellane, but after one night we left for better pastures.
This is a huge campsite where people go to party.The environment is friendly and the facilities were clean and comprehensive. However, near the reception is a common area where people hang out and make noise. Lots of it. The space we were assigned to when we arrived was a right next to this area. It was also lit up like daylight. People were partying and making noise until 23hrs, and our tent was illuminated as if it had been pitched under a streetlamp. In fact it was practically under several streetlamps.

The website and leaflets say this:
"Listen! Can't you hear anything?
So welcome to "la Ferme de Castellane", a haven of calm and quietness in the heart of Provence."

Nothing could be further from the truth. This is a site for those who seek party and fun. If you want quiet and love nature, this place is not for you.

I stayed here with two others for 5 weeks during the summer of June and July 2010 whilst I was doing field work for my dissertation.
From the moment we arrived the owners Gérard and Babette treated us like part of their family. We did not have a car during our stay so whenever we needed a lift into Castellane (about 1.5miles) to go shopping we were offered a lift.

The campsite is located in a fantastic location. The walk into Castellane is a nice 20 minute walk or a 2 minute car journey.
The campsite is very popular with families and couples.

We stayed in the 28m² which was big enough to fit 3 grown ups comfortably for 5 weeks along with all our equipment.

A continental breakfast was available, and a range of fresh bread could be purchased in the morning.

All in all this place is phenomenal. Myself and the others were very glad we stayed here. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will hopefully be returning in the next couple of years.

Thanks Gérard and Babette for making our dissertation work bearable.

Pete, Joe and James.
